By "carbon ion" do you mean carbide, C2-2? eg as in CaC2 or Na2C2. Metallic carbides are made by reacting carbon with the desired oxide or cyanamide at high temperatures.

I think carbon is a bit strange... You do get carbide ions but then you also positive ions such as CO2. I am unsure how hydrocarbons form though and if the carbon has a negative ion or a positive (the hydrogen must have the positive, or does it?)

CO2 is not an ion.

In hydrocarbons, covalent bonding occurs. There's no ions involved between the C-H bonds.

The same thing occurs with many other nonmetals like nitrogen, oxygen.
